The International Marina Institute, the training subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries, released its training catalog for its 2012-13 academic year.

Reformatted and graphically enhanced, the catalog features self-guided training manuals, online classes, conference schedules and beginning to advanced marina management courses, IMI announced.

Specific class times, dates and locations can be found throughout the season, which runs from September 2012 to December 2013.

“IMI is so much more than the Advanced Marina Management Class and the CMM certification. We have so many more offerings. This new catalog helps to highlight that IMI is the resource for training from entry-level to CMM and everything in between,” IMI training coordinator Kayce Florio said in a statement. “We are also very fortunate to have a world-class faculty of industry leaders who deliver these programs. They, too, are highlighted in this new catalog.”

The nearly 10-page catalog also includes IMI’s new Marina Career Paths flow chart, with training suggestions for those who have been hired in entry-level positions as well as suggestions for skilled staff and managers. For those planning to continue a marina career, the catalog outlines IMI’s certification process to achieve the Certified Marina Manager or Certified Marina Operator designations.
